Learn about Monarch Butterflies this weekend in Pismo Beach

Why do the world-famous Monarch Butterflies make their way to Pismo Beach each year?

This Saturday at 2:00pm, the Pismo Beach Monarch Butterfly docent will answer this question and more in an interactive presentation hosted by the Exploration Station. The talk will explain their migration process and feature a life cycle craft.

The event is free with paid admission to the Interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Center. The heart of the Exploration Station, this center features interactive displays, weekly activities, and permanent exhibits such as anatomy, the solar system, earth's physical systems, sound, and perception.

The Exploration Station is a non-profit public benefit facility in Grover Beach. Since its establishment in 1999, more than 2,000 young people have attended its volunteer-taught programs.

The center is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 12-5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11-5 p.m. Admission is $2.00 for children over age three, $3.00 for adults, and $2.00 for seniors over age 65.
